Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea to publish new memoir

Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea is preparing to publish a new memoir.

It was back in 2014 that it was confirmed that the 55-year-old had began writing the memoir. Now, the title and official release date has been revealed. Acid For the Children will be published on September 25.

Grand Central Publishing have described the memoir as: “Iconic bassist and co-founder of the immortal Red Hot Chili Peppers finally tells his fascinating life story, complete with all the dizzying highs and the gutter lows you’d expect from an LA street rat turned world-famous rock star,” it the listing reads.

It was only a matter of weeks ago that Far Out reported how Flea had opened up about his lifelong battle with drug addiction and the ever growing dangers of prescription drugs.

Flea, writing a detailed and honest opinion piece for Time magazine called The Temptation of Drugs is a Bitch, explained how he started smoking weed at the age of 11 before proceeding to “snort, shoot, pop, smoke, drop and dragon chase my way through my teens and 20s.” Explaining the severity of his addiction, Flea explained he had some “close calls” with death due to his drug addiction which he “cut out forever” in 1993 when he turned 30.
